How this school was rated a 3 is beyond me. My son has gone to this school for two years so far and I have never met a more dedicated staff. Teachers who really care, and go above an beyond the call of duty. Well kept, happy, colorful facility. Various programs, art, phys ed, music, fun Fridays, dances, community involvement, the list goes on and on. I would give it more than 5 stars if i could
We are very pleased with school 22. My daughter started Kindergarten last year and she absolutely loved it. Her Kindergarten teacher Mrs Bonilla goes beyond to help the kids. The PTA is very involved so is Mrs Dildy the school principal. Not sure why the old posts tells wrong statement about her. She is every morning greeting the kids and welcoming all the parents. Overall I highly recommend this school.
The new principal is very visable and approachable, but doesn't seem to answer your questions, just yeses you to death and agrees with you that there is X issue to bide time until she can get the answer, but it is a long wait. The PTA is very involved with fundraising and activities for the students. The secretary in the front office makes me feel like I am putting her out with a lateness or dropping something off. My child's teachers have been approachable and work well on a one-on-one approach but I think the curriculum is a little slow and doesn't push hard enough in order to keep all of the students on the same level which unfortunately is below standards. I am NOT a fan of the Yonkers School District Application Process for students entering elementary schools. The ballot is unbalanced and only allows for 1 school choice per predetermined grouping (which are not explained).
I have two children going to school 22, I LOVE IT!!! I'm very happy with the teachers, new principal and the PAT staff; it s one the good schools in Yonkers that I will always recommend from p-k to 6 grade.
So glad we left this school. It wasn't great to begin with & has been going downhill. Principal acts as though he's above everyone. When there is a problem, good luck trying to talk with him. He pushes the problems off on his staff. Vice principal is a lot more visible & involved. The teachers are overall very good.
